Not a bad idea for these dark evenings. Hangs from the dog's collar and two bright LEDs flash alternately. I thought it was wonky at first, but it has sensors so it only works in A- dim light, and B- when there is movement. There is also an on/off switch. Comes with batteries installed.

My sister puts bike lights on her dogs collar when walking in the dark. These look good as they are smaller and lighter then a bike light.
They are big dogs though so don't think the bike lights bother them.

Good idea but be warned, we put one on our dog and he thought the game was see how tough it was so bit it and broke the light in 2 seconds flat lol

Be good for attaching to backpacks/rucksacks as well. 8)

These from Amazon are a bit like Frog lights, except considerably cheaper - 90p delivered.

A wee bit pricier than the Home Bargains ones but a different option. Maybe easier to put on and off the collar seeing as it's just like an elastic band.

Nice one. Voting hot.

Try riding down a cycle path at night - these things are superb (shame you still can't see the stretchy lead between the dog and the owner though).

Not got a dog but this deserves heat!!

Most of the time these get hidden under the dogs chin so they're impossible to see from most angles. LEDs that go all the way around a collar are much better and just as cheap. These are a waste of money.

You would clip it where you attach the lead wouldn't you so would be on the back of the neck?

I'm interested in lights that go all around a collar. Could you let me know where you get them from at 79p please?
#17
I wish I'd had one of these last time I walked my dog in the dark, when there was no moon out, then there was a total power-cut and all the street lights went out... I didn't know where my dog was on the end of my lead

Might get one for the wheelie bin

As a cyclist who commutes at night, I can't commend lights like this and a high viz collar/lead highly enough. You'd not believe the number of idiots who dress in black with an extendable lead attached to their invisible mutt stretched across a cycle path who have no awareness of what's going on around them.
Very often, the only thing I see is a reflection in the dogs eyes and it's not until I slow right down that I become aware of the owner standing in the bushes and the potentially lethal string stretched across the path.

They are £1.43 delivered but they're really bright. They offer 3 modes (fast flashing, slow flash or steady on).

I've used 2 for a good while and wouldn't be without them! I will probably order a few more as it is hardly worth bothering with batteries at that price. They are from China but both my orders arrived after about 9 days.
#23
Ideal for the wife when i take her out
#24
Wish they did one that took a AAA battery as it would be more economical to run, especially as I could use a rechargeable AAA.
#25
Great idea this - heat added. Which branch / branches has anyone seen these in please ?
#26
Good price, but the item is pretty c**p.

If you walk your dog in the dark, I highly recommend splashing out on a LED head torch. I got an Energiser one that does Red or White at the hit of a button. The red is probably about as bright as 100 of these lights at about 30lm and I use that most of the time. The white I use in the fog etc. and that is about 100lm from memory.

They take 2 or 3 AAA batteries and are waterproof and tough enough to survive 2 GSDs.

I used to use small bike lights, but they are not built to survive dog level abuse.

If you have a large enough dog, then you can literally just take the top head bit off and fit it on the dog by the collar. For smaller dogs, you would have to modify the elastic. But in terms of size and weight, anything from a fully grown Jack Russell and up can take a head torch.

This one or similar: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ENERGIZER-PRO-HEADLIGHT-7-LED-WITH-NIGHT-VISION-MODE-FREEPOST-UK-/320859306799?pt=UK_SportsLeisure_Camping_LightsLanternsTorches&hash=item4ab4b47b2f

True, but on the other end of the spectrum if you are trying to pick up your dog's poop and a cyclist silently flies down a path that is shared between pedestrians and cyclists at 20-30mph, they need time to react.

20-30mph along an unlit woodland path or canal towpath at night - I don't think so. 15 mph maybe.
Trying to pick up dog poop in the dark without a light - I don't think so. I'd see them if they had a light.
They need time to react - I'll do the reacting but only if they give me a chance by not dressing as the invisible man.

If anybody wants a really bright torch - search ebay for 'LED torch' - get one with 2200 lumens. I bought a couple of these @ £8.99 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UltraFire-12W-2200LM-CREE-XM-L-T6-LED-Zoomable-Zoom-18650-Flashlight-Torch-Lamp-/350800657075?pt=UK_SportsLeisure_Camping_LightsLanternsTorches&hash=item51ad593ab3 - best torch I've ever had for size/brightness. You need to buy a couple of 88650 batteries and a charger, but they last a long time when charged.

That's not a personal dig at you, but I see that exact thing where I walk my dogs. Shared path opposite the field I walk my dogs so get to watch that happen from the safety of the other side of the road. Mind, there are probably an equal share of mad cyclists and mad dog walkers round our way. We get cyclists in the middle of the road wearing black with no lights on at night... when they are right next to a cycle path. Too hard for safety you know. o_0

And FYI if you are out without lights, you can see dog poop even on grass and especially on pavement once your eyes have adjusted, only on really really dark nights (cloudy, no moon etc) that you can't, even if you are under / by trees. Well, I can. Though I now always use really bright lights on my dogs anyway and carry a Lenser P5 and I stay as far away from other people, dogs, bikes and cars as possible.

Does it have a brightness adjuster and if so, what is the low setting?

If you are out in the dark and use a light that is genuinely 2200 lumens, you will not be able to see properly in the dark for about 5 minutes and you will probably blind your dog too.

My Lenser P5 goes to about 100 lumens and that is way bright enough for dog walking... maybe not for search and rescue, but you know, normal dog walking.

Thought I would give my opinion on these seen as though I have had many of these types of blinkers in the past and have wasted many of £££££££, I have 2 very outgoing dogs who are off lead a lot in the dark through woods, in rivers and the concept of these is good however the design is terrible

Firstly the ones in this thread, I got these as a spare last week just incase mine broke and so I tried it......lasted 3 minutes
Secondly pets at home do a similar one bullet style that are better last quite long but again they break

Now the common fault with these is the spring loaded clip, the metal is just too brittle especially for damp cold conditions, if you have a dog on lead all the time then fine they will do but I could not recommend these any more:

Link

I have had these 3 months now, they last in water, the clip doesn't break and they don't fall off. Extremely bright and the best ones I have ever had.........i would almost say they are spaniel proof

Light up collars, yeah good concept unless your dog has long hair then what? It covers the collar. These dangle below and are just brilliant

The only useful use of these would be for those dog walkers who don't pick up their crap - and if they could stick them on top of the pile ... to alert us where not to step

These are also good to put on your kids backpacks. As they walk along they flash and you never need to bother about switching them on or off to save the batteries as they only work when you move. B&M have them in white for 99p and they come with a spare set of batteries too.

As a chocolate Lab owner, anything that lights that (not so little) cannon ball with zero spatial awareness, up in the dark, is a good thing! :D

Same here, tags lasted only a few days before getting lost/broken, switched to illuminated collar for much greater visibility and cost less than three quid delivered:
